Slow Food Gardening Series: Winter Gardening

Saturday, January 17th, Slow Food members met at North Haven Gardens in Dallas to learn about winter gardening and spring garden preparation. The class, organized by Kelly Ingram, had a good turn out and was informative no matter what the size of your garden.

The group discussed in-ground, raised bed, and container gardens. We learned about soil preparation and seasonal produce, as well as how to get rid of pesky garden critters (rascally rabbits)!

After members had a chance to ask questions of North Haven's Horticulture expert, we toured the display gardens. Even with the city's recent freeze, the gardens were abundant with leafy greens, herbs, broccoli, carrots, and more. Several members got to take samples home.

North Haven Gardens has an impressive inventory of items, and offers consultation and free classes. See their website for the upcoming event schedule:

Members attending this class had a lot of fun learning. We hope to see you at our next event - baking bread at Empire Baking Company!
